The United States Hot Rod Association (USHRA) originated in 1978 as a sanctioning body for truck and tractor pulling events, later expanding to produce mud and sand drag racing. The USHRA grew steadily and within its first decade emerged as the premier Monster Truck racing organization. Today the USHRA, together with Feld Motor Sports, produces quality events and involves coordinating competition, defining regulations and technical requirements, setting safety standards and officiating at each event. Whether the USHRA event entails Pro Race Trucks, QUAD WARS, or Monster Trucks, you can be sure the event will be the highest quality show motor sports has to offer, creating unmatched excitement and spectacular memories.
